How XBM communicates in a data sharing environment
The following figure shows this interaction.
For more information about configuring XBM in a sysplex environment, see Using XBM in a parallel sysplex environment.
- To run Snapshot Copy jobs for DB2 in a sysplex, XBM for DB2 and the PSS component must be installed on each MVS system in your DB2 data sharing group.
- To run Snapshot Copy jobs for IMS in a sysplex, XBM for IMS and the PSS component must be installed on each MVS system in your data sharing environment.
- The versions of all XBM subsystems in the data sharing group can be different (within one version of each other) to facilitate product upgrades.
